tons of CO2 a year

We generated our first renewable electricity at the plant during July 2018, it now generates around 41MW of green electricity which is enough to supply 78,000 homes and save over 150,000 tons of CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is but would look the same as 250,000 really big hot air balloons and the saving is equal to 1.75 million plane flights to Paris.

FAQs

How does a biomass power plant work?

Biomass plants work in much the same way as a coal fired power station. The biomass, in our case waste wood, is processed, chipped and then burnt at really high temperatures. This heat is used to turn water into steam which then powers a turbine, generating electricity. This energy is then carried by cable to the national grid to be used across the region.
